Halina 35X

I was given this fairly decent condition Halina 35X some years ago by an elderly neighbour but what with all the moves and messing around, it’s sat in the oddly clean part of my car (just behind the drivers seat) for the last two years or so. I’ll admit to not knowing much about the camera, other than what I’ve just read in the wiki link above. I certainly didn’t think it was almost 50 years old!

At the moment I’m going through another one of those phases where I’d like to get an old manual camera (although possibly not as old as this one) and shoot a few rolls of black & white. Was thinking of a cheap Canon AE-1; There seems to be an abundance of them on eBay. Or, I could just get a roll or two and see if the light seals on this old thing are still intact.
